Las Vegas Wedding timelines are a lot different then timelines for other areas. For example, a lot of wedding venues do multiple weddings on the same day which can be problematic. Here is a typical wedding timeline in Las Vegas so you will be able to budget your time
Getting Ready photos and video
Ceremony - 20 minutes
Group photo and portraits 40 minutes
Garter and Boutique toss
2 to 3 hours
Total 5 to 6 hours
This is the typical timeline for wedding photography in Las Vegas. We've done complete wedding photography in as little as 4 hours but you will feel rushed to capture all of the events.
As you can see, being on time is critical for this timeline to be maintained.
Adventure tours on your wedding day
Another thing the comes up in Las Vegas is strip tours or location excursions. For example the Welcome To Las Vegas Sign or Red Rock Canyon. The traffic an distance can add at least an hour to your timeline and even more time if you are taking about a group of people. When we are asked to do three stops along the strip, the sign, Belagio and the Venetian we tell our couple that it will be an additional 2 to 3 hours of time. Most couple think it can be accomplished in a hour. The sign with traffic, parking and then waiting in line to get to take the photo will take an hour and sometimes longer should a tour bus arrive before you do.
We would be happy to to go over your wedding timeline with you and your wedding coordinator. We have photographed over 500 weddings and we can offer suggestions to make your wedding day run smooth. Feel free to call us or text us at 702 330-5838 if you have questions not covered here.
